Yes, sorry, doesn’t directly help you though. Did you try putting your card back in a phone to read?

In my case they won't format because they have set themselves to read only, so although I can copy all the data, I can't format to resolve any issues.

One odd thing is if I just try to delete the files and directories they appear to be deleted but if I remove then replace the card they are still there.

Looking on Sandisk's help pages I suspect it's a common problem as they have a return for replacement link for the exact problem, but even though they are only s couple of months old, I can't find the receipts so can't return them.

Bank statement is sufficient proof of purchase, you don’t need a till receipt.

Cash? How 90s of you ;)

Sounds like you may be scuppered then. At least they’re super cheap these days. I remember 128MB cards being over £100.

No, not yet... getting major building work done at moment, so it's sorta low priority. However I will and post what happens.

Thanks!

Interestingly I have had a few Sandisk (Genuine ones) go read only when used in my Samsung Devices, annoyingly they were all 64gb versions and I cant find the receipts for replacement, I try not to buy sandisk products now as a result.
Yes, me too. And the same device has always worked perfectly well with other brands, including nameless generics.

There, doesn't that feel better?

:laughabovepost:  :claphappy:

OT : I recently took a load of £1 coins into my bank (52 of them found in various pockets and sofas) but the cash counting machine was broke, so teller had to do it by hand,
I was disappointed when none were handed back as counterfeit, I had been led to believe in statistics that 1 in 30 (or summat like) were, and although I had examined them and found none I had hope of at least 1 souvenir of man's propensity to fiddle easy money :(

I asked if the machine would have been clever and would have rejected any such, she said yes it would have , , , but didnt see the joke when I asked for them all back (not expecting them, they were already in her drawers ! ) to check in the machine later when it was fixed  :angel:

Why did she put them in her drawers? ???
You know you're getting older when your mind makes commitments your body can't meet.

Fancied a bit of a change perhaps?

Maybe she was planning to spend a penny later?
